As much as I can't stand Maroon 5, the one thing that always makes me feel better is thinking "Hey, at least they're not Train!"

Have you heard "Power Trip" (feat. Miguel)? That song's great.

I really love this album, and understand that there are obviously a lot of strong '70s funk influences here, but am not familiar enough with that sort of music enough to pin them down. Anyone care to share any '70s funk album recommendations for listeners of this?

First impression: It's ok, not great. Also, dude seems awfully insecure/jealous for someone who's built his career off singing about sex and drugs with tons of random faceless women though.

I disagree. I pin this on Hillary, individually, as a candidate. Bernie was just as far left socially as Hillary, perhaps moreso. Hillary could have talked till she was blue in the face about absolutely nothing but economic concerns of the working class--no one would have believed her or given her any credit for it. She was just a terribly flawed candidate from the start, because she could never be a credible messenger in delivering the populist message that people clearly wanted to hear. She's married to the man who, more than anyone else, was responsible for the neoliberal, New Democrat direction that people clearly have rejected. And as evidence, just look at all the counties that Obama won--sometimes by large margins--in places like Wisconsin, Ohio, Michigan, etc. that flipped to Trump. The voters in those counties clearly weren't basing their votes on race, or social issues. Being either black or socially liberal or racist apparently didn't matter to them as much as voting for the more populist candidate who could speak to the working class.

November 23, 2016 on SNL’s Colin Jost Responds To PWR BTTM Following Widespread Criticism Of His Weekend Update Trans Joke
I agree with everything you have to say, however, I do get pretty annoyed about the constant bashing of political correctness/"safe spaces"/trigger warnings--not because it's unwarranted (those things do stifle the free exchange of ideas) but because the vast majority of the time they're targeting strawmen in order to tarnish all leftists with views only held by a very small minority. I attended a heavily left-leaning college (University of Maine in Orono), was a member of the Progressive Student Alliance and was very involved in various left-wing causes (particularly pro-marriage equality campaigns). I never heard of a "safe space" or trigger warning until recently, and only at that point from right-wing agitprop and social media trolls. I did, however, find some peoples' political correctness and lack of humor in some of my social circles stifling. But you know what? You can always find less PC crowds--even on college campuses, that crowd is a minority. I do find protests against any and all right-wing views bothersome, especially protesters who try to shut down those views altogether by blocking entrances to buildings or simply causing a scene during a speech. But that's a very small minority, especially when you look beyond college campuses. Young voters are in fact underrepresented because they don't turn out at the same rate as older voters do. And the voters chose Hillary by about 1.7 million votes. So political correctness isn't really what's wrong with the Democrats' electoral strategy.

"That don’t mean I don’t believe in women’s rights." Well clearly, Ye, you don't believe in a woman's right not to be sexually assaulted, considering your support for both this asshole and Bill Cosby.

The First Circuit Court of Appeals in MA recently ruled that a similar NH law banning voting booth selfies was unconstitutional. I expect if TN tries to prosecute JT, their law would face a similar fate.

Maybe his lyrics were good on it, those have always been great regardless of the music.

See I thought it had some "hey that's actually pretty good!" tracks but no "killer" tracks. And I will defend "We Were Dead ..." till my dying day--THAT has some killer tracks! But still, by MM standards to me, no killer tracks=honestly not that bad=terribly disappointing.

Reminds me of "Strangers to Ourselves" in that I hoped the first single ("Lampshades on Fire"/"Perfect Illusion") would be one of the weakest, but turns out to be one of the best songs on a terribly disappointing album.

Nope, I've listened to Lil' Wayne so I can't be angered or offended by an admission of sexual assault. For that matter, if you've ever seen a horror movie, you can't be bothered in the slightest if someone admits to murder.

I doubt it because, in a really fucked-up, twisted way, that could be seen as a sort of compliment considering the (sexist) image the public has of Hillary being a total ice queen.
